I feel a bit different about this. I don't think it's ever a good idea to "reinforce" most existing furniture to hold an aquarium.
Water weighs about 8.3 pounds per gallon, and by the time your add a substrata, some rocks, and the rest of the equipment, your will over 100 lbs for that 10 gal tank.
Get a for real aquarium stand, and you'll sleep a lot better at night. Building an aquarium stand is also an option, and not at all difficult to do.
